You need to activate write permissions for the folder in which the Eye Candy 8bf file is located. Eye Candy 3.1 is quite old, so it assumes that it can write to its folder, which is not possible if you are not logged in as an administor in a newer version of Windows.

then do what you would have to
8bf is going to file in the eyecandy 3.1
Right click and run with the administrator? .. would be the way?

You could run PSP as administrator, but much easier is to change the write permissions. To do that right click on the Eye Candy folder and select Proprties. On one of the tab sheets you can change the permissions.

This is an old post, but I have the same problem. how to I fix this in Windows 8.1. I have Eye Candy 3.1 in folder but no place to run as admin.
Hope someone has answer.
Also a previous version of Eye Candy was deleted from computer, but still shows up in my plugin list. How do I remove that item?

Right click on your host application icon, e.g. Photoshop, and choose "Run as administrator".

Look for the Eye Candy .8bf file in the plugin folder of your host application and delete it to remove it.

Thanks for the quick reply.
I went into and set the write premissions. Haven't installed new version of Eye Candy yet.

As for the other 'phantom listing'. I did a search for Eye Candy 3.1 on all my folders on computer, deleted every mention and this still appears in Effects/Plugins/Eye Candy 3.1
I also went folder by folder thru drive C\ and there is no eye candy file anywhere.

Eye Candy 3.1 consist of the files "EC3-ENG.8BF" and "EyeCand3.8bf". Please do a search for them and delete them.
